WEBMASTER'S CORNER

The "Dead or Alive?" website is offering a $10 "per head" reward for any name included on its "People Alive Over 85" page (click here) whose status dead or alive has been out of date for more than three days (click here for details). If you would like to be the first person to win $150, below are 15 individuals listed in chronological order by the birth date used on the "Dead or Alive?" website it claims are alive who are actually deceased. (I've included singer Eydie Gormé because she is listed on the site as still being alive, even though she's not on its "People Alive Over 85" page.)

I know for a fact that there is someone monitoring the "People Alive Over 85" page because singer Dolores Hope was, for a long time after she died in 2011, included on the list, but she's now been removed, as has actress Luise Rainer, who was deleted from the page immediately after her death in December 2014. In addition, new people turning 85 are being added.

The heading of the "People Alive Over 85" page reads, "Yes, despite some skeptical emails received, all of the following people really are alive...yes, really." And yet, a quick Google search shows that they're not. If you're successful in getting any part of the reward, please let me know. I'm not asking that you split it with me, however. Just the fact that you were able to get thru to the person or persons who monitor the site will be good enough for me!
